One of my favorite things about the 40s era is the deep story telling depicted in the films. When it comes to romantic movies the stuff today can't compare to the romance dramas and comdies from the past. I love watching late 30s-1940 masterpieces. On the top of my list is Now Voyager (1942) starring the magnificent Bette Davis in all her glory. The Major and the Minor (1942) with glam icon Ginger Rogers is also a fav. A rare gem that I absolutely love is Seventh Heaven featuring a young James Stewart in the leading role. Although it came out a bit early missing the 40s by a few years it's unbelieveably romantic. What's some of your favorite romantic films?

Bette Davis is just amazing.  I love watching her films. She is one of the best actresses if not the best of that time.

I have always been a sucker for a Bogart film.  My favorite has to be "Casablanca" when he let's Ingrid Bergman go off with a "Here's looking at you kid".

I think my favorite romance movie is probably Casablanca, too! Although it makes me cry a lot, but I guess that's just a sign of a really good film, eh? :D

I was just watching something about the making of Casablance and learned something I didn't know before, that being that the famous last line wasn't added until after the filming, which is why the camera has the two men walking away from it.  Bogart spoke the line later.

Of course that is a sign of a good film. I love a good film that can make me cry.
